Default New Lures for the season

Hi everyone,

I live up in Maine and I'm starting to do some pre season shopping for lures. I usually fish at the mouth of rivers or straight up surf. I was wondering if anyone had any good suggestions for some good lures for this season.

Thanks

Can't go wrong with swimbaits. Seems like a lot of guys use them in the beginning of the year and do awesome with them.

Big Hammer makes some awesome soft plastics.

Bombers seem like a great choice as well.

Another choice is the new Daiwa Salt Pro Minnows...Look great & have rolling weights inside that assist in casting then return back so as to work the swimming action..Cast very well..Did well at Pt judith last year with these...About $10...Jim

When you 3way your bucktail (boat, drifting over reefs), do you: drag it on the bottom, as close to the bottom as possible without getting snagged, or a couple cranks off while watching the fish finder?

Roccus..You're probably rightabout the bucktail...In the San Francisco Bay, its tops..Even in the ocean surf its great with lighter gear ( Steelhead rods & 250 Calcuttas )..We use 1/2 oz banana jigs with a 6 "white worm tail...Excellent lure..Jim

I'm by no means an expert on bucktails but the simple answer to your question is YES. On a flat/sandy bottom bucktails can be casted out and retrieved slowly, bounced off bottom along the way. This will kick up sand and debris along the way and mimmick prey attempting to flee. The most effective method for fishing bucktails, in my experience anyway, has been the old rip/twitch method. Cast out your bucktail (I'm partial to the red/white laughing) and use a quick retrieve while "ripping and twitching" the tip of your rod as you reel in. Tip your bucktail with a pork rind/other soft-plastic trailer for even better results. I'm sure others will chime in but that's my .02 cents. Tight lines out there this season fellas. . . . .
